Better Than Catnip {book giveaway}

Better Than Catnip Ruth J. HartmanAuthor Ruth J. Hartman is giving away two e-copies of Better Than Catnip, a sweet romance novel that throws together a cat-loving woman with a gorgeous man and his son, who is terrified of cats.

About Better Than Catnip

Roxy Williams adores cats. Always have. That's why she devotes her life to running a stray cat shelter. But is that enough? Isn't there a man out there who will love her for who she is? A special man who won't try to change her or ask her to choose between him and her cats?

Max Weller has a problem. His son, Derek, must complete community service for fighting at school. The only available place is the stray cat shelter. But Derek is terrified of cats from a frightening childhood experience. How will they get through this traumatic experience?

Roxy and Max feel the strong attraction pulling them together as Max volunteers at the shelter, too. Will they be able to keep the spark alive? Or will Derek's fears come between them?

For years, we were dog people, but one icy February night, a little black cat followed my husband to the car after work. The poor little winding around my hubby's legs meowing pitifully until my kindhearted hubby couldn't bear it and he picked him up and brought him home. It was only to be for a few nights, but we ended up taking him to the vet and naming him Max (Maxie) and we had him for 17 wonderful years. Hubby loved him so much he was unconsolable, and we found him another black cat named Midnight, but Midnight wasn't friendly like Max. She hid and hubby took her back to the shelter, but he went back looking for another cat. Midnight heard his voice and came to the front of the cage meowing until he put his hands down for her. She rubbed against them, and he brought her back home. lol She still hid all of the time, and we decided to get another cat. Our Tortie is named Dora (Dory), and she is mine. lol When hubby brought her home, she came right to me, and she's always been mine. lol It was just what Midnight needed to pull her out of her shell. She's definitely dad's girl and follows him everywhere like Max used to do. Midnight is still afraid of everyone else but us. We love cats, and they are so smart.

L'ENFANT NUCLÉAIRE de Daph Nobody:

Depuis son plus jeune âge, Jiminy Waterson a un don : un estomac à toute épreuve, capable de dissoudre de ses sucs gastriques particulièrement puissants tout ce qui n’est pas comestible. On veut faire de lui un rat de laboratoire, mais son ami Alex l’encourage à utiliser ce don sous la forme d’un show, et l’entraîne dans une tournée à travers les États-Unis. Ainsi, au détour d’un prêt-à-manger planté au bord d’une route de Virginie, Jiminy devient-il L’Homme au Ventre Magique. Mais quel est donc le rapport avec ce complot politique qui se trame autour d’un détournement de déchets nucléaires ? Ou avec ce prisonnier dans le couloir de la mort, dont on organise secrètement l’évasion ? Ou encore avec ce flic qui n’a plus qu’une seule idée en tête : se débarrasser de sa femme ? Un seul dénominateur commun : la folie humaine…
